2020 World Awards Part 2
European Golden Boy
European Golden Boy is an award given to the most promising prospects in world football. Some have prospered and become the players that they were ment to like, Lionel Messi and Sergio Aguero. Others, didn't reach their full potential, like, Anderson or Alexander Pato. Over the last, say, 10 years, the vast majority of players who won the award, have blossomed, and we hope the same will happen to this man, Svetoslav Milev. Milev started his career at Bulgarian team, Ludogorets 1945 where he stayed for 3 seasons, making only one start for the senior team. He was sent out on loan to Ukranian club, Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk, in the 2018/19 season. After a season there, he made a switch to Stuttgart, where he plays now, for £2.3m. Milev was loaned out to Mainz the same season.
And the final prize of the night, the most coveted prise in World Football, the Ballon d'Or. The winner of the Ballon d'Or is.... LIONEL MESSI! As if it was much surprise. Since Ronaldo was released by Real Madrid, Messi seems to have had no competition at all, getting first over Eden Hazard by 277 votes! This is Messi's third competitive Ballon d'Or which shows that he's still going strong at 33 years of age.
What night it has been, 3 awards and lots of bragging rights have been given out tonight. Messi comes out with the biggest award, the Ballon d'Or, while Stuttgart youngster, Svetoslav Milev managed to grab himself the European Golden Boy award! It's been a hell of year, and we would like to thank, you, the supporters for your passion in the beautiful game!
